“The melodies feel as lived in as the lyrics and linger long after the last note fades.” – American Songwriter
“Mars’ fat grooves and syncopated rhythms inject vitality into the often dull singer-songwriter genre.” – Glide Magazine
Mississippi-born singer/songwriter Charlie Mars is a country- and folk-inflected pop artist blessed with a warm vocal croon and a knack for crafting poignant, earthy songs. He has been a journeyman artist with major label releases and high profile gigs opening for the likes of REM, KT Tunstall, and Steve Earle, among others. The Mississippi-based troubadour developed a sonic style uniquely his own. With its sparse instrumentation and focus on transcendent grooves and ambient space, his minimalist approach to music ads maximum intensity to Mars’ already powerful songwriting.
